Hello there, I'm R.T Britto.
I'm an engineer, entrepreneur, and Jesus geek.
I was raised in a congregation that preached a mix of law and grace. On the one hand, I was told that God is all-merciful, and on the other, that God punishes us for breaking His laws by casting us into hellfire. This left me confused about how to view God and who He truly is.
I'd always heard that Jesus died for my sins. But the significance of it, and how it affected my daily life, remained a mystery to me. I tried reading the bible at times, but not knowing how to read it correctly, ended up mistaking God for an angry judge who was full of wrath.
It was after a dear friend got saved and shared the good news of the gospel, did the full revelation of God’s mind-blowing love strike me!
THE GOOD NEWS
Religion burdens us with do’s and dont’s. Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is Christ living within us - the union of God and man!
You don't have to beg or chant certain prayers over and over again or do any "work" to be saved. Salvation is more than just forgiveness of sins and a path to heaven. Salvation is derived from the Greek word "Soteria," which means healing, protection, and provision. Salvation is a complete gift! This unearned favor is God’s gift of grace.
Gifts cannot be earned. Gifts are freely given.
Even when you mess up, God loves you—with a never-ending, never giving up, always and forever kind of love.
Jesus did not die simply because you are a sinner; He died because our true purpose - living in union with our Creator - had been lost as a result of sin. He created us in His image so that we would reflect Him.
As an introvert, the idea of initiating a conversation with someone, let alone anything spiritual, terrified me. Yet the beauty of Christ's message was too magnificent to hold to myself.
AS JESUS IS, SO ARE YOU IN THIS WORLD!
Every believer, Jesus said, has the ability to heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons. Jesus did many miraculous things, yet He said we would do greater things than He did.
When you receive the revelation of your divine identity in Christ, you wont be worried about what tomorrow may bring. God has already placed the power that raised Jesus from the dead within you, giving you the ability to tackle any situation.
God’s grace is not just pardon. It is power and pardon; Power to be transformed and transform lives through Christ’s Spirit working in us.
